Change To WWE Match After Legitimate Injury Revealed? WWE

WWE star Wes Lee has made an intriguing pitch for the upcoming NXT North American Championship #1 contender’s bout.

A three-way match to determine Oba Femi’s next challenger was set up on this week’s (May 14) NXT episode for next week, with Wes Lee, Ivar and Josh Briggs.

The closing moments of this show cast uncertainty on this match, with the returning Joe Coffey, Mark Coffey and Wolfgang attacking all three competitors backstage.

Ivar has since revealed that he’s dealing with a legitimate injury, so won’t be able to compete in the #1 contender’s bout set for the May 21 show.

Wes Lee has now taken to Twitter to ask NXT GM Ava to add Joe Coffey to the upcoming match.

Lee wrote:

AYO @Joe_Coffey attacking me must’ve had a purpose..Just because I’m focused on my North American title doesn’t mean I won’t knock you across your thick skull.

@avawwe_ what are the chances you can add him in next week?? I’m sure the others won’t mind..

Joe replied to this post with a video message, during which he noted:

Hey Wes, sucks to be you, pal. Gallus does whatever we want now. Bye!

You can view Joe Coffey’s video below.

WWE NXT has retweeted Lee’s post, but hasn’t confirmed Joe Coffey’s addition to the match at the time of writing.
